The City Council and Planning Commission met with Community Development Director Mark McGrath, to discuss an item of the Taylorsville’s 10-Year Strategic Plan. This item is the Design Consistency Manual and will be a new element of the General Plan. The Design Consistency Manual was given $15,000 of funding in the 2013-2014 city budget. The proposed item is to develop a design consistency manual for all gateways, parks, trails, streetscapes, signage, and to create a “branding” strategy. This strategy will address:
- General Design Guidelines
- Specific Sites
- City Buildings
- Street Furnishings
Here are some of our existing “Gateways”:
This map shows where we are proposing to have the Gateways (blue stars) and where the existing Gateways (the red stars) are:
How do you think the Taylorsville “Gateways” should look? What kind of image does Taylorsville want to portray?
Do we want signage? Landscaping? Maintenance?
Here are a few examples of other City Gateways.
